Charlton Athletic are interested and linked with making a move for Glasgow Rangers’ struggling 25-year old defender, Lee Hodson, according to the Scottish Sun.

The 2016/17 Sky Bet League One campaign came to an official end for clubs which did not make the playoffs, which includes Charlton Athletic, on the final day of April. League One sides are now in the process of pushing full steam ahead to sell, loan and buy players, in order to mount a more successful campaign in the 2017/18 season.

Charlton Athletic have been linked with Glasgow Rangers’ Lee Hodson. The full-back was originally signed by Mark Warburton last summer but has continuously struggled to secure a first-team place for the Scottish Premier League giants.

Hodson has made just nine league appearances for the Rangers, including only one under the recently appointed manager, Pedro Caixinha. As a result, many could conclude Hodson’s move to the Scottish outfit, and his experience this season as somewhat of a disappointment, and as a result, he could be tempted to make a move back to England.

Last season, Hodson had a one-year loan spell at Kilmarnock, which means he would have played with Josh Magennis, who made a move to Charlton Athletic last summer and could link up with the Northern Ireland international once again if he was to make a move to The Valley.

Before playing Scottish football over the last two seasons, Hodson has had stints at Brentford, Watford and joined Karl Robinson back in 2013 at Milton Keynes’ Dons which could have a positive impact for Charlton if they were to approach the defender in the transfer window.

Charlton Athletic finished 13th in the Sky Bet League One 2016/17 season and performed well under the expectations. Charlton manager, Karl Robinson has been promised funds to rebuild in the summer, and Lee Hodson could be one new face that the Charlton faithful could see in an Addicks’ shirt come August.
